Subject RE: build file gallery for new ant users?
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2001 17:19:32 GMT
Yes, it certainly is a wonderful build file, but I suspect that a few
smaller ones might be more helpful to a new user. I am teaching a friend
of mine how to use ant and I think that a huge build file would
overwhelm him right now.

Would it just be more helpful to post commented build files to this list
and let people find them through the list archives or actually put up a
page somewhere?
